Mrs B has been in excellent running form - so for Date Night we decided it was about time to give the Jubilee Walkway a decent showing.

It's a really odd FKT in that everyone who has ever run it has done quite a different route. It's basically 5 small loops that are well mapped but then amalgamated into one big loop - so how you get from one loop to next is never straight forward. There are all these Jubilee Walkway plaques embedded in the pavement and they are positioned to show you if you should be going straight ahead or coming up to a left or right turn - but as you can do this route in either direction the signs are spaced out with one pointing one way and one another.

London is coming out of third lockdown and tonight the river was busy. So there was plenty of people to dodge.

Pretty happy with this one. Big thank you to Julien for all his help with the smoothed out version. Our version is 95% Julien's with the Barbican bit following the original Jubilee maps.

Good to be back.
